Exit Counseling

The Exit Counseling session is required of all borrowers who have received a Federal Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loan and any of the following conditions apply:

  • Enrolled in school with less than half-time student status
  • Withdrawn from the University
  • Transfer
  • Graduate

The Exit Counseling session is available online at https://studentloans.gov. The U.S. Department of Education PIN (personal identification number) is required to access the counseling. If you do not have your pin number, you can request it at www.pin.ed.gov. Completing this session is a federal requirement and will provide you with important information regarding student loan repayment, to include managing your debt, various repayment plans and options, forgiveness requirements and tax benefits.

Upon successful completion of the Exit Counseling session, confirmation will be sent electronically to Austin Peay State University.
